Review | Herbal Essences Conditioning Mousse

11 Mar

pg-7092_1z

Herbal Essence has definitely made a treasure amongst the drugstore hair products. The mousse comes out heavier and thicker than most mousses that I have tried, so remember that a little goes a long way! As soon as I put this stuff in my hair it felt like it had been through a really good deep conditioning treatment. It did not take longer to dry, did not leave any grease, and my hair was shiny and defrizzed after my blow dry.  I find myself touching it throughout the day because it is so soft. And don’t get me started on THE SMELL!!! There’s coconut in there and it smells so tropical in a non-overwhelming way. I’m excited to use it again. The only concern is that the bottle is on the skinnier side compared to others such as Tresseme’s mousse.

Lush Bath Bomb | Review

29 Apr

We all know I love my baths. I most recently tried the Tisty Tosty bath bomb from Lush. I had gotten it as a late Christmas gift from my good friend, Jon. Don’t worry, he didn’t give it to me in April. It was more like February or March. We tend to stretch out our holiday seasons 😉

It has rose, jasmine, and orris in it. Lush advertises it as being a love potion because roses have an aromatic ability to make you feel loving, positive feelings. The rose oil also helps soothe dry skin.

Orris is the root of an Iris flower. It is used a lot for perfumes. FUN FACT: it can be found in lots of gin brands too! To me orris smells like violets, but has a more permanent smell.

Back to the bath. It was my first time having rose buds float around while I was relaxing. It definitely added to the ambiance. I felt royal and romantic as if my prince was outside trying to scale the wall for my rescue. It definitely was relaxing in a more pampering/”you’re worth it” kind of way. Who doesn’t like to leave a bath with a little ego boost?! Thanks Jonny Cupcake 🙂
